If you are travelling you may find that at some point are on the road at the time of an election. 


To make sure your vote still counts while you are traveling, there are a number of options for voting while on the road:

• If you are traveling within your State of residence you can vote through pre-poll, postal vote or as an absentee voter.

•  If you are permanently on the road and no longer have a fixed address, you can enrol with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) as “No Fixed Address”.  Just go to http://www.aec.gov.au/Enrolling_to_vote/Special_Category/Enrolment_with_no_fixed_address.htm and download the enrolment form.

•  If you are interstate on Election Day, you can cast an Interstate Vote at a special polling place called an interstate voting centre.


For more information on ways to vote you can visit the Australian Electoral Commission’s website by going to www.aec.gov.au/voting/ways_to_vote/, or to contact your local AEC Office just phone 13 23 26.
